People of the Passion
During the season of Lent, we witness the depth of God’s love for us, as it is revealed through Jesus’ self-sacrifice for us. We seek to be moved toward love for God in return. On Easter, we will celebrate that God’s love overcomes death and sin when Jesus is raised from the dead.
As God’s Son, Jesus knew that his divine purpose was to die on the cross on behalf of all of humanity. He went to the cross of his own free will and determination. Even so, the choices and actions of others also led to his death. This Lent, we will look at the “people of the passion”. We will see how Jesus’ love persevered through all challenges and reaches out in love toward us today.
